Battery operated amps/systems

Busking and playing in areas where it is not convenient to plug in require a system or amp that runs on a battery. There are several on the market now. Which one do you use?See More

I welcome your friendship.  Thank you for the invitation.  Do you prefer to be addressed as PaDuff?  (There are some little people in my family who call me "Grampa".)

Yep, practice practice!  Freeing up your picking hand will take a lot of work but it's very worth it.  Hang in there.

Well it's a fun road but it will have it's frustrating moments.  Hang in there & if I can help just give a shout.

Hey there,

Great to hear you like the right hand exercise video!  There are a bunch more instructional videos on my web site and YouTube, including a series on right hand technique.  I'm working on a series on picking techniques (alternate picking, cross picking, rest strokes, hybrid picking etc...) right now.  Here are some links to other materials you might enjoy.


Do stay in touch and keep me posted on how things are going.  Always feel free to ask questions, I am happy to help however I can.
